For the record, it was this nut Wertham's attempt at proving how comic books corrupted young minds with their evil stuff. Basically an attempt to drive comics out of business or at least censor them. The shame is that it largely worked---to an extent, and for a fairly long while. Their were Congressional investigations, (proving BTW that Congress was always a place for idiots), and it led to the establishment of the Comics Code Authority.
The main themes were "ooh, sex, violence in comic books!" No shit Sherlock...
Then it went on to say that Batman would turn the kiddies gay or something. I don't know, the dude was pretty crazy.
